The Ontario Association of Food Banks is the leader in province-wide hunger research.
The OAFB releases a report on the state of hunger in Ontario at the end of every year. This report details the statistics gathered by our food bank network through Link2Feed and Food Banks Canada’s annual HungerCount survey. The report also provides our analysis of current food insecurity trends and recommendations for change.
Link2Feed is a cloud-based client intake and reporting system designed by food banks for food banks! All members of the OAFB use this system to ensure the secure and confidential collection of quality data on food insecurity in Ontario.
The OAFB works collaboratively with experts on food insecurity to research and analyze the complex problem of hunger and poverty in our province. These reports explore key trends and the impact that poverty has on Ontario’s overall healthy and well-being.
